Where is our loved one being taken?
If the death is indeed a coroner’s case the deceased is initially taken to one of our contract mortuaries and then if required, to our morgue for autopsy. Autopsies are performed to determine the medical cause of death and to gather evidence for presentation in a court of law. In cases of natural death where the deceased had no physician, or in the case of a traumatic death where the cause of death is obvious, we may elect to do only an external examination of the body. For more information please call 530-265-1321.
